4-15-11: Those Caton Sisters!

April 15, 2011 at 8:01 am Leave a comment

 The four Caton sisters were the granddaughters of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.  They were rich, beautiful, and to varying degrees smart about managing their own money. In the early 19th century three of them went off to London, swept Britain’s aristocracy off its feet – and married into it.

Biographer and financial expert Jehanne Wake read the many letters the sisters wrote each other and did much more research to write Sisters of Fortune: America’s Caton Sisters at Home and Abroad.  She’ll be appearing at the City Lit Festival this weekend.
